Print to file from Star 500

Recommended Posts

Here is a new one:

I want to print to my cash register printer (Star 500). It only understands ASCII (at least not without creating a custom program).

I normally drive the printer from a program I created but I wish to print out my information (I only need text).

I have created the layout, but when I print it to a file it always has non ASCII characters. I tried the line printer mode driver from Star but this does not help.

I have been able to export to a text file (tab delimited) then sending it to the COM port but this is not very easy to explain to a normal user.

Any suggestions?
